Historical information
“The Sea of Hands was originally conceived in 1997 as a creative way of demonstrating opposition to the Federal Government’s proposals to amend the Native Title Act to restrict Indigenous native title rights.”
“Australian Artists Against Racism came up with the idea of recyclable plastic hands in the colours of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags planted in a design.”
